1955: Humanity’s Bad Face Year

Can someone explain to me what was going on in 1955? Was everyone contorted by fear of Communist infiltration? Were chemical mutagens being released experimentally into major league clubhouses? Did Topps photographers surprise players on their way out of the bathroom? And then run their portraits through Photo Booth for Mac?

Part of it, I think, was that flying saucers were everywhere.

Also, Duke Snider really would like to find a toilet.
